MANCHESTER, New Hampshire — SolarCity® (NASDAQ: SCTY), America’s #1 solar power provider, is expanding its New Hampshire presence with a new, 26,000 square foot operations center in Manchester. Governor Maggie Hassan, Mayor Ted Gatsas, Councilor Chris Pappas, and other state and local officials joined SolarCity staff to cut the ribbon at the new facility today. The Manchester operations center is SolarCity’s first in the state, and the company expects more than 75 jobs there when fully staffed.
“On behalf of the people of New Hampshire, I am proud to welcome SolarCity to the Granite State,” Governor Hassan said. “SolarCity’s decision to open this facility in New Hampshire reinforces that our tax-friendly environment, small and responsive state government, highly skilled workforce and high quality of life make the Granite State attractive for growing businesses. SolarCity will help encourage energy efficiency and diversification in our growing clean energy sector, which will help reduce costs for ratepayers, create jobs and decrease harmful emissions that lead to climate change.”
SolarCity, which launched New Hampshire service in the spring, makes it possible for many New Hampshire homeowners to install solar with no upfront cost and pay as much as 20 percent less by going solar than they pay for utility power, with installation, production guarantee and monitoring included. SolarCity also offers customers the option to purchase upfront.
The new SolarCity operations center creates new solar jobs for the state. With more than 40 staff already in place, the company is actively hiring for open positions in sales, installation and related roles. SolarCity already employs over 1,000 employees in New England who serve Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. The company will service residential and commercial customers as far north as Concord and Laconia, as far west as Keene and the entire Southeastern part of the state including Portsmouth and Nashua from the location.
